J67 was designed by Ejvind A. Johansson in 1957 when he became head of FDB’s furniture division. While relatively unknown outside of Denmark, his original designs receive cult status at many auction houses across the world. With a simplified base and seat, J67 is characterised by its slender, forked backrest.
FDB (est. 1896) are Denmark’s longstanding cooperative of home goods producers. Since the 1950s, they have been recognised, both in the design world and Danish households, for their creative furniture studio which housed a generation of iconic architects and furniture designers, such as Poul Volther, Børge Mogensen and Ejvind A. Johansson.
With a democratic approach to furniture; FDB embodied the idea of well-made, everyday furniture with the functional refinement which so encapsulates Danish Design. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the J series; a refined and simple collection that is not simply furniture, but part of Denmark’s rich cultural history.
